'cause it's a really nice city. you know, who wouldn't want summer all year? >> hawaii because i like the area of it, the beaches, the coast, and the wildlife there. >> i think i would go to miami. it seems like a very fun place. >> i would say...i don't know. i really like space. i feel like everything else is just sort of really attainable, but going to space -- going to the moon just seems really cool. >> the nice thing about dream vacations is that you can go anywhere you want -- and the price is right. >> the saying "you'd better eat your vegetables" has taken on a whole new meaning for a group of students. eden has the story. >> these students are digging into a new project with
of 1997 when i was broke, broken, and on drugs. i was in mexico city where i had been lucky enough to go under a book contract from new york. i got an advance from a new york publishers to write a book. a dream come true. in mexico city i had crossed the deadline and didn't have a word written and i was broke and i called the only friend i could count on at that point because my life style led me to destroy a lot of personal relationships. i call the performance artist lives in the united states for many years and the solidarity network, art and politics in the 1980s and i said [speaking spanish] >> in the village of joshua tree, calif.. there is a set of circumstances that led her, she is from the tropics in central america. how did she wind up in the desert? everybody has a story in the desert how they got there. she said [speaking spanish] we will take care of you and give you a place to live. i arrive in the desert and one of the first things that i saw when i rented my little shack in the sand next to a sign that said next services, hundred miles, town of 29 palms, felt myself drive
everybody was affected because of that. in mexico, for instance, the variation of time was 1 1/2 meters. as you can see there, when that happened, 3.34, immediately we have different waves. the high of that wave was at about 50 meters but one hour after that in one place we start having waves of 30 meters. a happened in the island of guata after that, 7:00 in the morning we are still having different waves at different places in the coast arriving every 30 minutes and the average high was about 15 meters, which is a lot. another massive effect was that the south american plate jumped over nafka plate, or nafka plate gets down. we moved 3 meters to the west and at the same time we lift up at about 3 meters in certain areas. so navy -- this is very important because in some places where you are supposed to get into with your ships, not any more. so a hydrographic survey, certain port was absolutely mandatory when you have this event. i said to the australian staff, because of that we are closer neighbors right now. here you can see an example that was before the earthquake, the dist

of state. we have them moving to us, about 1,300, from all sorts of places, including new mexico, oklahoma, louisiana, all over the place. and then you prepare all of your logistics and make sure you're ready to go. the key is to have your folks here on the grounds ready to go when the storm hits. >> with that army on the ground, everybody wants to know, even before they lose power, how long they should expect to be without power. >> this is going to be a long one. the challenge is a long duration of wind over the territory. we're going to have the storm coming in monday into tuesday. if the winds are above 35 to 40 miles an hour, our bucket trucks are ineffective. it's not safe. >> when you say a long one, are you talking about a week's time? >> i would say we're going to have an extended duration of outages. i cannot imagine if we get several thousands of outages, they won't extend into next weekend, but we'll have to see what hits us. this storm can change on a dime, as we've seen. >> rob gould, probably the last night you'll get sleep for a while. >> it's going to be a long one. >> oce

in southeast asia were relatively safe. in late 1995, 1994 early 1995, the world as we knew it changed. mexico crashed and something strange happened within three days market in how long hong kong, india and poll land crashed. we didn't expect it. we didn't understand what what was in place that was causing world emerging markets to crash because mexico crashed. when economist can't understand something, we give it an special name. we call it an anomaly. [laughter] when asia crashed we truly understand that something was different because it drags down every emerging market in the world. and hence the nasty animal that was in the system, we call it fear now, if one emerging market gets hit, money was pulling out of every single emerging market blindless of the reason of the initial crash. at the junctionture most developed countries markets were real relatively safe. it was short lived. as you know, late 2007 we crashed. and we infected the entire world. this was a domestic crash beginning in the housing market that spread to the derivative market and so on. because of financial trade and remi

, some from as far away as mexico. i'm always worried about overhyping a storm, especially this far in advance. let's just try to get the facts tonight from chad myers, who has late new information in the cnn weather center. what's the latest on this storm, because honestly, i'm not sure -- is this for real? because we hear so much hype about storms sometimes. >> you know, it's the rub that we worked through last year with irene. we thought it was going to be such a big event for new york and it was a dud. it wasn't a big dud for vermont, new hampshire, new jersey, because of the flooding. but this is what we have to work through right now. this storm that looks like that, like just literally nothing, still a small category 1 hurricane, but can this morph literally into something that will have 80 to 90 mile per hour winds, put 20 inches of rain down, and cause millions of people to be without power for days and probably some for weeks. can it happen? yes. all the forecasts say that it will happen. but you know what, all the forecasts said that irene would be a worse storm than it w
, as you see on your screen, all of john kerry's states from 2008, plus new mexico, and you know, and give ohio to romney, well, we're stuck at 266 for romney, 263 for president obama, and this is very possible. because you have president obama winning in nevada, and then you have colorado with those nine electoral votes, mountain time zone, late closing time of 9:00 eastern time. we could be up until 2:00, 3:00 in the morning waiting for a state like colorado. there's even another scenario if you were to give president obama ohio but mitt romney squeezes out a win in wisconsin which is paul ryan's home state, and give mitt romney iowa, those are 16 electoral votes. and then we're stuck with president obama, 265, mitt romney at 264. and colorado, once again, probably the closest state right now, would be determinative with those nine electoral votes. >> and so what about the latest nbc news poll for colorado's likely voters? as we get to some of these details here, can you go through that and explain the numbers there and the changing from just earlier this month? >> yeah, well just from l

. >> narrator: mitt's great- grandfather miles was an early church leader who had established a colony in mexico. >> the romneys had left the united states and went to mexico to avoid persecution, but it's also to pursue polygamy. >> narrator: miles romney had five wives and 30 children. >> they built a ranch and he's back in stone age conditions with no money. romney's father is now on the scene. that gets destroyed by guerrillas. they move back to california, poverty again. they build it back up. they move back to salt lake city. they build it back up. romney's whole history of a family is that they knocked us down, we built it back up. we didn't make a fortune; we made a bunch of fortunes. and they resented us for our success, but we kept coming back. that's romney's history. >> with someone with a name with romney you heard about the sufferings of your ancestors and their sacrifices and all they've done that you feel like, well, it's my turn now; i've got to pick up the baton and run with it. >> narrator: but mitt and his family rarely tell the story to outsiders. >> it's an incredible histo
, to a hurricane. 75 maximum winds, 85-mile-per-hour gusts. this, you can see the gulf of mexico all the way to the central atlantic. 450 miles wide from the center. we have tropical storm force winds. now, again, it is a hurricane. now, typically this time of year, whether it's a hurricane or tropical storm, this polar jet goes eastward out to sea. but this is not the case. it's a hybrid of a storm. this area of high pressure, what we have is essentially called an x block, it's not able to move eastward because it's forced to go to the west. so with that, what will happen again, and it is with all these computer models certainly in a consensus it will move in through the mid-atlantic and back westward. watch it come ashore, possibly on monday. the most damage just north of the center of circulation when it comes onshore in terms of coastal damage. but take a look at this. here's the forecast model guidance of where it will move. saturday, off the coast. sunday into monday, again, expected to restrengthen and be a hurricane offshore monday. but look at this, ten inches of rain potentially al

wrapping up one of his fan favorites, "mexico." he is getting the crowd energized here, alex. he's been playing for the past 20 minutes or so. the crowd cheering. they're excited. i'm told president obama just arrived on scene so we're expecting him to speak within the hour. so a lot of energy here in new hampshire. this is of course one of the those key battle ground states, alex. four electoral votes. doesn't sound like a lot but it is a lot in a race that is this close. every single electoral vote will of course matter and carry an immense amount of importance on election day. president obama carried this state back in 2008. this state hasn't been impacted as much by the economic downturn as other states. the unemployment rate is at 5.7%. that is far below the national average. however, mitt romney owns a home here. he was governor of neighboring massachusetts. so he certainly carries a lot of weight here in new hampshire. of course, this state is really known for its independent streak. so both candidates really appealing to that group of voters as well as women and young voters. al
obut ma promised his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, canada. in countries that have made themselves more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. so today his campaign tries to deflect and detract, to minimize the failures and make this election about small, shiny objects. but this election matters more than that. it matters to your family. it matters to the senior who needs to get an appointment with a medical specialist but is owed by -- told by one reception after another that the doctor isn't taking new medicare patients because medicare has been/ed to pay for obamacare. it matters to the man from waukesha, wisconsin, i spoke with several days ago. in what were supposed to be his best work year he had a job at $25 an hour with benefit, now he has one at $8 an hour without benefits. it matters to the college students graduating in the spring with $10,000 to $20,000 in student debt who learns she'll also be paying for $50,000 in government debt. a burden that w
-rate candidates not panning out so well like linda in hawaii and heather wilson in new mexico. i think it's about a 40% chance of republicans taking a majority. but i think it's going to be a lot of one-two point races so that i would not be surprised if wednesday lunchtime we may not be positive. remember, six years ago the last time this group of senate seelts were up you had missouri, montana, and virginia still up for grabs. and that was the majority of the senate. and in those three states, senator editor figured this out, 4.8 million people voted in those three states and those three states were decided by 60,600 total votes and there was the majority of the senate. i think we could be in that kind of situation. but basically once you moved nebraska the nelson open seat from the democratic side to the republican side that's a done deal. basically, republican seats, three if they win the white house or two if they win the white house, three if they don't if nebraska's moved over and you have five democratic toss-ups, five republican toss-ups. and keep in mind that those last group of toss-up
